The MacRumors-forum has now > 800.000 members!
See attachment (click to enlarge):
Woah, that's huge! Congrats Arn and the team!
That's a lot of registered people!
It is. I'd like to see how many of them have more than 10 posts or are actually active.
It's certainly not going to be close to the registered number. Could you imagine how busy this place would be if this many were active on a regular basis?
Since the Memberlist.php is disabled, this might do it for now.
Back in the good old days, a mod (I believe) had a thread on this with stats. A large majority of the posts were made by a pretty small group of members. Of course, the forums are much larger now but I'd bet the same pretty much holds true.
and all of us in this thread are in that small group lol
Be ready to have 100 full time mods to be payed
800'000 is an impressive number and a base for growth; a real time statistics as linked above would be nice; or some quarterly updated version.
I'm curious. Do you suppose there is a threshold at which point the site would crash from too much traffic? I know it gets locked up when there's a big story or some product launch. Oh and congrats to Mac Rumors. That's a lot of people. We could start a Kiva team.
At a certain point the site would run out of bandwidth or the servers would fail or both
I don't know. Only the admins would have proper knowledge of how the servers can handle the load. I think, however, that their ISP bandwidth would suffer more than the servers would under high load times. But then again, I could be talking out of my rear on that one.
That is pretty interesting. I would love to see this updated since it is from January 2012. At the time the chart was made, only 13.13% of members had more than 10 posts.
But sadly only the admins or the people with access to the memberlist can do that, maybe the Doctor might integrate those numbers in the next Top 50 Spammers Extrapolation once the first two quarters are over.
in deed interesting ... I also would like to see how many user got banned in those early posting levels to see how many are created just for spamming. Or if the 800k number only contain active members at all.
Questions about Spamming and Banning!!
I'm absolutely shocked!
I thought everyone, all 800,000 registered members, were al perfect ladies and gentlemen!
I'm so disillusioned...
This is a huge achievement..And goes to show how the Mac. Apple community continues to grow...Good job arn!
We presently have 96,635 users who have made at least 10 posts.
91,193 have made more than 10 posts if you want to compare to the earlier figure.
Given this figure and a total member number of 800,000 the percentage of members who have more than 10 posts has dropped to 11.40%
It would be great if the member list could be re-enabled long enough to collect updated stats.
I agree, or at least let it make it accessible to logged in members only, thus the server should not overload from those bad robots.
I wonder how many are banned?
I noticed the 800k threshold when I reported a post for being spam. That user was then banned.
As often as I report spam, I don't think "logged in members only" would be an effective gate.
Wow 800k is awesome!
It wouldn't be a bot refreshing the page constantly so as to fetch more emails/users.
800,000 is a difficult number to comprehend; I can't imagine how many people that would be. It almost doesn't seem like a lot, even though my brain tells me that it is for sure.
